Guides on Cloth Face Coverings
Public health authorities now recommend wearing cloth face coverings in addition to social distancing—particularly in public settings (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). People with no symptoms may still be able to infect others, so the use of simple cloth face coverings may help slow the spread of the virus. Both Riverside and San Bernardino County have ordered all residents to wear face coverings when leaving the home and visiting essential businesses.
